The study period is May,2005 to May 2012.Twenty four patients (Male16) with bilateral Posterior Polar Cataract were operated sequentially with phacoemulsification technique .No hydroprocedure was done in any of the patients. The nuclear gradings were NS2 in 31, NS 3 in12 and NS3+ in 5eyes The mean time difference between two surgries is 565 days, range being 1-1895 days.Right eye was operated first in 13 patients
Five eyes developed Posterior Capsular Rupture(10.4%). PCR did not occur in both eyes in any of the patients. The first eye suffered PCR in two patients while it was the second eye in three cases. There was two PCR in each NS 3and NS 3+ and one in NS 2.
